Celebration Time!

DSC01916

These past few weeks have gone by in a blur. The LHC provided us with the first collisions, then it became the highest energy accelerator, and for a few minutes last night, the LHC became highest energy collider.

Crazy.

It’s been busier than usual at CERN, with people in a rush to examine the first collision data to try and learn as much as possible. But tonight, at least some of us, took a little time to celebrate. Our detector, CMS, held a Christmas Party near Prévessin-Moëns, with food, drink, and music. 800 people showed up: physicists, engineers, post-docs, students, and their friends and family. Everyone has been working so hard, putting in extra time, they deserve it.

It is an exciting time to be here.
